A walk on the wild & wintery side to Birkdale Tarn
'When you're down and troubled' ..... 'take a walk on the wild side'.
Mixed lyrics but not a mixed message - walking is such a good tonic
Birkdale Tarn, remote and frozen. I didn't test the ice. I didn't even go down to the waters edge. I'd already waded through snow drifts that almost stole my wellies so I was taking no chances. The day was calm & still but the risk of snow coming from nowhere was ever present and I was on my own.
So reluctantly I turned and headed back, following my footprints until home came into view.
